Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week is a week-long sporting celebration for schools across Britain, inspired by the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
In 2011, more than 4 million young people took part in Britain’s biggest school sport event. Delivered in partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, the 2012 week took place from 25th – 29th June 2012 and the theme was all about staging your own Games.
Registered schools received access to some helpful resources to help bring the excitement of London 2012 to your school, including how to stage your own Games, host a Torch Relay, plan an Opening and Closing Ceremony and how to engage young people in a wide range of sports. Schools were also able to register for additional resources so they could celebrate London 2012 World Sport Day on the opening day of National School Sport Week.
Lloyds TSB National School Sport Week not only helps fulfil school objectives for PE and sport, but can be used across the curriculum to create excitement around the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games and help young people live the Values of the Games.

- Provide opportunities for young people to try new sports and feel part of the London 2012 celebrations
